Views: 4450
Size:  52.4 KB
Pros
  • Generally weighs about half as much as a bar and plate core of similar dimensions
  • Generally less expensive
  • Generally less flow restriction within the core than bar and plate designs
  • Allows better flow to the rear of the core and to a radiator

Cons
  • Offers less heat rejection than bar and plate
  • Generally have more fins which means they're more likely to be damaged by rocks/debris which cuts down on cooling efficiency
  • Charge air entry extends beyond core wall making it more difficult for air to enter the core cleanly
